year and a half, general martins and his team of prosecutors, defense lawyers, bailiffs, interpreters-- about 250 people in all-- are airlifted aboard a government charter to the u.s. naval base at guantanamo bay, cuba, at a cost of $90,000 a flight. >> hello, everyone, and welcome back to guantanamo bay, cuba, pearl of the antilles. >> stahl: when the trial begins more than a year from now, it'll be the biggest war crimes tribunal since nuremberg, and much of the burden rests on general martins' shoulders. so, when it's a military tribunal or commission, how is it different from a civilian proceeding? >> mark martins: the similarities really swamp the differences. i mean, the accused is presumed innocent, the prosecution must prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. >> stahl: general martins knows a lot's at stake-- the 9/11 defendants must be seen as getting a fair and legitimate hearing. >> martins: we've got to ensure that what we do in these cases is justice and can't be accused of being vengeance. and that's a great challenge. >> stahl: now, we have talked to some of the defense a
testimony. the defense chose not to the trial is still going. we are looking at two, two and a half more weeks of testimony. >> thank you so much. for more on this trial, let's bring in former prosecutors and defense >> so the judge did not let her in the courtroom. and also the defense chose not to question her. why? >> you know why, because she's a kid. when this happened, she was sick, when she was questioned and videotaped, she was 7, now she's 12. it doesn't make sense for the defense to push her. she was just a child. she's still a child. here's what's going on, the grand scheme, we're on day eight of this trial. all the d.a. has established is martin mcneil was a cheater and liar who wasn't in love with his wife. there's no forensic evidence, no direct evidence there was a crime committed. >> who had his mistress -- >> well, he did ask for way more drugs for her after her plastic surgery, the facelift, the wife who died than normal. would that not be key evidence? >> that's key evidence. she's got no history of drug abuse is key evidence. and although this is all circumstantial ev

playing defense who repeatedly says he simply wasn't aware there would be problems that would ultimately lead to a disastrous rollout. joining us now, fox news host, governor mike huckabee, who is here to offer his perspective. governor, great to have you. let me ask you first, what we're seeing is a law designed to cover the uninsured. it's now booting far more people off their insurance plans than it can sign up. right now, on the nonfunctioning insurance exchanges. governor, the longer this goes on, what does this do to the president who can't distance himself from a law he set in motion and the cornerstone of his leadership agenda. >> he really can't, uma. the fact is, he can say i didn't know about these problems. well he should have known. frankly, i don't believe for a moment that he didn't know. no less than nbc indicated that the president knew three years ago that everything he was saying at the podium, if you like your health insurance you can keep it. he knew that wasn't true. if he had explained that more people would lose their insurance than would keep it and that this pro

. it wasn't just the black flags of al qaeda flying. it was the fact that there was a defense department report, a report from the defense department saying al qaeda is setting up a cell in benghazi. watch out. the repeated requests from the people in the embassy. we need more security. it fell on deaf and blind ears. >> so if it was about the election, now we're post-election. >> right. >> so why would the administration continue to allow al qaeda to become stronger in egypt, syria, iraq, afghanistan? i mean, it's one thing to be blinded before an election. >> right. >> but it's a whole nother thing to have the legacy now of president obama be -- to be blinded about al qaeda? your thoughts. >> yeah. as far as the legacy you're absolutely right. they remain blinded about al qaeda. why? if they admit it, then they'd have to go back and say we really did make a big mistake on benghazi. they're not about to admit that. he's looking for a very different legacy. the legacy he wants is an arms control deal with the iranians at almost any price. the iranians want to have the sanctions lifted. t
's veracity. and tonight they're trying to push back. white house aides began mounting an aggressive defense of why potentially millions of people who buy their own insurance were told by president obama they could keep their plans yet suddenly cannot. >> what we're talking about here is the 5% in the country who currently purchase insurance on the individual market. and that market has been like the wild west. >> reporter: that 5% in the individual insurance market translates into up to 14 million people. and the real question now about the wild west is whether the president was fast and loose with the facts. >> if you like your private health insurance plan, you can keep your plan. period. >> reporter: the white house is now adding all kinds of context and qualifiers saying what he meant is anyone who had insurance before health care was signed into law in march 2010 is grandfathered in, except on the third anniversary of the bill signing this march the president put out a written statement using the present tense declaring "if you like the plan you have, you can keep it." and on monday ni
tried to help martin macneill, the defense countered by saying if she doesn't testify honestly, she'll go back to jail. today the prosecution0s main focus is what happened after michelle macneill died. martin macneill hired gypsy willis as the the family nanny. the prosecution asked, did the sexual experience go on after she was hired. the answer was, yes, and then began looking for wedding rings and he proposed, giving her a 4-1/2 carat diamond. that is when she took on the name jillian macneill so she could go on the military base with martin mcneill, and listen to this. >> what name was used for you? >> jill yap g. macneill. >> did how hold yourself out as married to someone in. >> yes. >> married to whom? >> martin macneill. >> did you have a marriage day on this? marriage day is listed as april 14-inch. >> of what year. >> 2007. >> what is the significance of april 14th of 2007. >> that is the day of the funeral. >> the day of his wife's funeral was the date that she put down for the wetting dade. a that's gypsy willis' mom testifying and she testified that martin macneill neve
do not? >> no, as a 30 year it official that developed things like this for the department of defense and private sector you can replace it, but you can't fix it. >> is that the solution thaw see, take the whole thing down and start all over again? >> they will probably try and tell us that they are fixing it and i am not going to tell you that there are not components that can be used in a rebuild, but you can't patch something like this up, bill, it doesn't work that way. it is not going to happen. and what needs to happen is finger pointing needs to stop. you heard the apology today. kathleen sebelius tomorrow needs to apologize tomorrow. >> i how far she can go to satisfy you. i take two from your answers there is not a lot you can say. do you know if the president asked to see the web site before it was rolled out in >> i do not know if the president asked to see the web site before it was rolled out. that is an interesting question. but the president ought to reimburse the american people for the cost associated with fixing or replacing the web site. over $400 million is spent.
: absolutely but dianne feinstein is not the person to do it. her biggest negotiation comes in from the defense contractors. a need to replace her with someone else like henry waxman or bernie sanders. jonathan strong who covers congress for national review magazine tweeted this about feinstein cause reaction -- -- feinstein's reaction -- thomason maryland, and republican caller. alexander had it right on the money. we are going through a lot of politics. obviously it is unpopular. associate nominee good things with the word "espionage." many goodciate not things with the word "s cannot show." -- "espionage." going back to it alexander said, made ace s valtem and we usually have to justify things with probable cause. we are not willy-nilly spying on angela merkel. that is a good strategy to half. there is some intelligence -- if there is some intelligence we are doing legitimately, we can always fall back on it and that is pretty much what i want to say. the story in "the washington post" has the headline -- group thatbipartisan wants to rein in the nsa spying program and stop this dragnet coll
? was it secretary of state clinton? secretary of defense panetta? both deny knowing of specific threats. and, of course, president obama says he did not knowed extent of the danger either. after the intent was underway the administration did not take action. >> you did had this conversation with the defense. you asked him what military assets were on their way and he says? >> effectively they are not. >> and i for a moment i just felt loss i didn't. i couldn't believe the answer. i said you have got to tell those guys there may not be any help coming. >> and there wasn't any help coming. now the defense attache in libya was lt. colonel keith phillips who says there was a fuel problem in getting air power to libya. but with all the warning, shouldn't the u.s. military have been on alert in that region? of course. of course they have you had been. so, here is the overall situation. you have a president, who apparently is disengaged from day-to-day activities in his own government. and one after another, you have major problems. before obama care, many americans were apathetic to that but now b
does the defense get past that? >> this is devastating for the defense. obviously, if your own kids think you murdered their mother, the jurors are going to think, that's pretty compelling. he's their father. they should love him and be loyal to him. so i think that really is a big blow to the defense, but i'm not sure that he still gets convicted because you have to prove guilt beyond a reasonableble doubt and how did the death happen. >> how did the death happen, and the witnesses, jean has been reporting on this, there are questions, one of his daughter as former drug addict, another bipolar and his other mistress with a disorder. if you can't trust the messenger, how do you get past that? >> they have baggage. all of these witnesses have h major problems, so if you're looking for reasonable doubt, you may find that. and how did he do it? when the medical examiner did the autopsy she said she died of natural causes. >> the mistress said he explained in pillow talk how he can do that. >> hwhat is his method? does the prosecutor know? will the prosecutor call a head kill expert to
today. good public servants, people well-trained and were in the line of defense. i think everything really worked as well as it could have worked at lax today where law enforcement people stepped in and saved a lot of lives, did what they were trained to do, whether it was the tsa, whether it was the police. the system worked pretty well, piers. and i think we should all take a great deal of comfort in knowing that the system that was put in place after 9/11, the system that has kept a lot of americans safe on aircraft worked well today. >> i totally endorse what you're saying. there are calls from certain sections that the only answer to an incident like this is for the tsa to be armed themselves. what was your reaction be to that? >> well, piers, let -- let me just say that's a silly idea. it's a dumb idea. it would not work. what happened today was the law enforcement people add lax, the lax police, the people that are trained at the airport to intervene did that and they saved a lot of lives. the tsa people did what they were supposed to do, which made sure that people were take

on european citizens. it represents information that we and our nato allies have collected in defense of our countries and in support of military operations. >> reporter: our european allies still not satisfied with this defense. i met last night with the vice president of the european parliament who said a serious trust deficit remains and that deficit is likely to have consequences, including on a major trade agreement the two sides are discussing right now. kate and chris, you have a german delegation visiting the white house. the issue that seems to spark the most anger for the european side is not just that spying take place but it went right up to the leaders such as angela merkel. that's the issue that sparks the most anger. >> all right, jim, thank you so much. interesting, though. mike rogers always says, that's why the president has to have an encrypted blackberry and cell phone. everyone is trying to spy on president obama as well. >> we don't know how much the politics is masking the practicalities these days. >> good one. >>> another storm, not of the political nature, a real on
to be and criminal defense attorney mark geragos. what is the significance of what the federal government did today? >> it's a new set of eyes and you'll have fbi agents looking at the available evidence, perhaps forensic scientists looking at what they can look at but the problem is it's been almost a year since kendrick died sbl and the evidence collected already has been collected and the evidence that's not been collected is not. >> there is no way of undoing that and going back to the gym and getting the sneakers and testing the blood on the wall. they will do their best but i don't think anyone should get their hopes up there is going to be a dramatic break in the case. given the fact so much time has passed. >> mark, the u.s. attorney said himself that federal jurisdiction is limited. what exactly does that mean? >> well, it's limited in the sense they don't have -- you're not going to bring a traditional murder case. you may have the violation of someone's rights, things like that and it's one of the few times that i actually agree with toobin. this is a hard case to have somebody revisit a
, a lot of coroners in this case. joining me in this case are defense attorneys and former prosecutors. boy we get a lot of bang for you our buck here. i have been following this trial and it is interesting. i can't imagine anything more compelling than this, the daughter who was with her mom 24 hours before she died is a medical student and was on the stand saying this. >> why were you seeking information as to your mother's death? >> because i -b8 -- because i believe my father killed her. >> objection, your honor, move to strike. >> overruled. >> overruled. doug? >> every trial have i been in and i would love to get my colleagues' point of view it would have been sustained and strucken out. you can't say i think mr. x did something. you need evidence and facts. having said that, i will completely reverse course and agree with you, jaime which is oh my god how compelling and devastating. i am not laughing. >> the jury heard it. she was a medical student and she was there. >> it is just the family dynamic. in 99% of trials family members are supporting the defendant. here you have a c
idea? >> to continue the falcons theme here, back then the defensive coordinator took over for dan reeves. right now they are talking about the defensive coordinate forfor denver, jack del rio, who is also head coach at jacksonville back in the day. not a very good one, i might add. but at this point, you have peyton manning as your quarterback, you just need someone who can fog up the maror so fox can get back -- >> i like that. fog up the mirror. keep them warm. right. so let's stay with the nfl here. dolphins jonathan martin, this week, he left the team after an parent prank in the cafeteria. there were reports he was bullied by teammates. today the team issued a statement saying in part our primary concern for jonathan is his overall health and well-being. as an organization we take any accusations of player misconduct seriously. the notion of bullying is based on speculation that hasn't been presented to us as a concern for jonathan or anyone else internally. what do you make of this story? >> let's put this in perspective. i've done reporting on this over the last couple of d

. it looked like they were being insensitive to the cancer patient. >> a strong defense is a good offense and these guys are really offensive. and that's why they see no problem going after her instead of obama. why was this missed? this whole story, which has been out since 2010, why was this entire story except by fnc and conservative blogs? and it's very simple. media bias provides a blinder that obscures the beliefs. it's the morphine that deadens the pain of your own mistakes. so there's no way that the media could see this until now. >> do you see -- seriously, did you see in 2010 -- did anybody in this country -- very few people were aware of this. >> oh, my god. >> that you couldn't keep your -- >> are you out of your mind? >> bob, where have you been? that was the reason republicans won in 2010. >> i'm talking about the majority of the american people. >> can i just throw this out here? i'm a conspiracy theorist. the reason why obama delayed the employer mandate is they knew it was going to be 70 million people thrown off the rolls and they didn't want it in an election year. >>

at the department of defense tying that to this litmus test. but it would be totally inappropriate to require some statement like that and given the number of people that you talked about being involved, this wouldgi have come out of officially rather than just few the innuendo of tying it to the cuts. >> host: congressman mike conaway, our guest here, republican from texas sifting on intelligence committeings taking your questions and comments about the nsa intelligence and surveillance programs. ron, you're next. from vermont. democratic caller. hi, ron. gest i would like to say years ago, j. edgar hoover had many files on people especially from congress. i think that right now, the whole democratic process has been underminded. america is no longer free. when you know, we have files now, electronic files on all congressman, on all senators, on all leaders, how can we trust anybodyon in our government any longer because how do we know that you aren't being coerced into voting certain ways? i have had it. the government is corrupt. and we're looking elsewhere. >> host: ron, we'll get a response f

should stop apologizing, stop being defensive. the reality is the nsa has saved thousands of lives, not just in the united states but also in france and germany and throughout europe. and we're not doing this for the fun of it. this is to gather valuable intelligence which helps not just us but also helps the europeans. >> so, mark, we have allies that are upset with us, germany, france, mexico, brazil and spain. but the reality is that we're all doing this. >> i'd like putin to be angry with us, okay. i'd like to know that the north koreans are angry with us more than our allies but let's say what peter king just said. peter king is mixing apples and oranges. i agree with him, nsa spying that protects our national security is critical. but he is lumping in this what i would call gratuitous spying on our leaders that could have enormous consequences for our national security. >> what if this is just trust but verify? >> listen, in the end trust but verify comes down to a very simple proposition. they all knew that we're spying. they do it, everybody does it. but the fact of the mat

it? maybe. most likely. did he lie? i have possible but the secretary of defense not conclusive. here is the example of a provable lie just so you know. last night bill maher progressive zealot accused me of promoting the republican party, implying that i used talking points from the g.o.p. that's a lie. i have never received republican talking points in my life. anyone who watches this program knows but moore doesn't care. he has nothing to lose by spouting dishonest jibber irish. he makes money doing it president obama has a lot to do in fact, he could be impeached. if that were proved proved beyond a reasonable doubt. why would the president risk that in the key question in this intense debate? that's the memo. we will read some of your letters on the subject at the end of the broadcast. now joining us from los angeles ebony williams radio talk show host in for kirsten tonight and kate observen observe on -- obama care a great program that will benefit the vast majority of americans. he did not address the lie thing straight on, but indicated that his descriptions of the benefits o

the secretary of defense know about a cable coming out of benghazi in august from our ambassador to washington, the state department saying we can't defend this place against a coordinated al qaeda attack and al qaeda flags are flying everywhere? how could the secretary of defense know that and not secretary of state? here's the way this will work. i am hoping they will relent and allow us to interview survivors of appropriate -- >> if they don't? >> i will ask my republican colleagues and democratic colleagues stand up to the obama administration. don't let them get away with this. can you imagine if this was george w. bush and he told the congress after 9/11 you can't talk to anybody because there is a potential criminal investigation. we're not going to investigate how 9/11 became the failure that it was. >> 60 minutes ran a story last sunday in which they talked to the british supervisor of local libya security around the consolate before the attack. here's a clip of that. >> i was saying these guys are no good, you need to get them out of here. >> you also kept saying if is place is attac
